Re: Replacement thermostat in chest freezer
In order for the "stat" to sense the coldness of the freezer box it needs to be within the chilled space. it is probably held on by a couple of clips on the underside of the freezer compartment on the evaporator plate.

Hi, sounds worse than just the bulb if you heard it bang, I would get it looked at, electricity can kill and your light is in the lid and you touch the lid to open it.

Wiring diagram of the chest freezer turned into chest fridge. The junction box is not required if all connections are made inside the fridge service compartment. Active (A) connection passes via latching relay terminals inside the thermostat.
Possible bad thermostat. You can disconnect the thermostat, take a jumper wire and plug in where the thermostat goes. This will tell the unit that the unit is turned on. If the freezer freezes, then it is the thermostat and it needs to be replaced. They can be purchased from an appliance supply house. Do not run the unit with the jumper wire or the compressor will run and not shut off.
